    It's all downhill from here. Except the parts that are uphill.

    Makes you wonder from whence they all came. Which reminds me of the joke about the guy working in a gold mind that every night would leave work with a wheelbarrow full of dirt. He said he was using the dirt to fill in low spots in his large backyard. The security people were skeptical and would sift through all the dirt each night. Finding nothing they would let him pass. Six months later they figured out he was actually stealing wheelbarrows.
    A conclusion is the place where you got tired of thinking. - S. Wright

    That would be far more effective if it had a Coyote, Bear and a Mountain Lion chasing a Cyclist down the road. Or just simply say, "stay the heck away". They forgot Snakes, Bees, land mines and open pits.

    I bet the Mountain Lions and Bears worked all night printing and posting that sign. No more stalking and chasing, just jump on some poor hiker/biker who's deeply engrossed in reading the big old sign. Simple yet brilliant.

    The instructions of what to do if you see a mountain lion, bear or coyote are different.

    So, what do you do if you see all three at once, while a rattlesnake slithers towards you?

    Wake up from my nightmare. (We don't have snakes in the wild. Nor, any of the slithering kind except as pets)
    It is better to smell the flowers than taste the roots.

    Get down on your back on the ground, pull your legs up over your shoulders and kiss your @ss goodbye.

    Tell them to stand back until you've finished reading the sign, then run like hell.

    It was out on that huge rock by the side of the road in the middle of nowhere in the Missouri Ozarks not long after Christmas. Food for the birds and squirrels was the only explanation I could come up with. I thought I should record it for posterity.

    I carry a camera with me all the time. The last 2 shots are scenes I witnessed on my bike but returned with my "big" camera.

    Coyotes, at least here are no worry(for humans). They just avoid you. Now, your little pooch or kitty may not be so lucky. Bears are not that much worry unless you threaten the cubs or threaten them. Mountain lions? Worry.
